🤔,recall Staf van Reet got a breeding station ticket ( one free with so many bags of corn )took that ticket to the breeding station,allowing him to get a bird,...brought that bird home,bred out of that bird,that was the start of that Daniel dynasty!

One stud I went to I never viewed the birds i wanted,one had to ask at reception what birds you were after,they in turn got a fella to go and fetch a few in boxes,who knows they might have been in the Same State
The Other stud we went to where I got my Van Loons....same again,asked what I wanted...so off goes the fella with a basket in hand,over a 5 bar gate,15mins later 6 birds in the basket,you never see the birds in there loft/s
At least those birds at the breeding station are on wire,so the detritus drops through so they are not standing in it
Agree with you there,there well over due,a barrow & a scraper :)

I personally agree with Grizzlecock, I think we worry too much about how clean our lofts are. As long as they are dry and well ventilated I don't think a bit of muck will do them any harm. It will help build natural antibodies and if the birds are healthy then there shouldn't be too much in their droppings that will cause any harm.
I also don't go much on pedigrees, as long as the birds are coming from an established source/team and have the attributes you are looking for then you have a pretty good chance of getting birds that will do the job. You can spend silly money on pedigrees and still get rubbish. What you do with them once you have them is the art of this sport, how you select your breeding can ruin a good line or improve an average one. Jmo.
